“As a PGA Golf Professional, I need to keep my body in the best condition in order to maximize my performance on the golf course. Shasta has helped me tremendously overcome lower back and hip pains that were detrimental to my golf game. She has also helped me free up tension in my neck, shoulders, and abdomen allowing Qi energy to flow freely through my body keeping me energized for a full day out on the golf course. She has also taught me about proper nutrition and eating habits which have led me to live a healthier and happier life. I would highly recommend Shasta to anyone that is looking to get the most out of their life both mentally and physically.”

I tried this place because of the Yelp deal they offered.
Thank you Yelp cause even though I have always wanted to try acupuncture I never really had a good reason to go. At least that is what I thought until I went there. Shasta is amazing. She is very kind and caring and explains things very well. I had a little understanding of what to expect from an acupuncturist, about the flow of Qi and it’s purpose throughout the body, but after visiting here I feel empowered to better harness this energy. I can not remember the last time I have had a nights sleep where I wake up refreshed in the morning. With this little bit of information Shasta, though acupuncture, made 30 minutes feel like an entire night’s sleep. I am glad I came here and will be coming back for more.
All in all, I recommend this place for those looking for a well-balanced place to help make yourself better and balanced.
Happy New Year Shasta!
I wanted to thank you for all your care, nurture and support of the last six months. Not only did you help me get through the six months of intense training. I was able to finish with a twenty-minute personal record over my last Ironman Race five years ago.
I could not have done it without you and your support!
Thank you so much,
“Shasta is a wonderful asset to any athletic regiment. Her care made me focus on new areas of my mind, spirit, and body that never paid attention to. With that said, I would highly recommend her acupuncture treatment, products, and services to anyone, especially active adults and aspiring, armature or professional athletes.”

I came to Shasta a month ago with unexplained infertility and out-of-control I had trouble sleeping, breathing, indigestion, caffeine addiction and a sweet tooth. I’ll admit I was nervous at first about being poked with needles. It didn’t hurt at all. I actually felt this fantastic zing called qi or chi. After the first treatment, I could breathe, not hours later, immediately!!! That night I sleep well. I followed her food recommendations and continued my treatments as scheduled. asthma. I’ve never seen an acupuncturist. She made me feel very comfortable as did the office staff.
I have been going one month now and I am completely asthma free. I have not used my medication at all. I have been asthmatic all my life. In addition to losing weight, I now sleep through the night. I have kicked that nasty caffeine habit and afternoon sweet tooth. I was supplementing my lack of sleep with sugar and caffeine. I have a whole host of other things I could list that Shasta has helped healed but for me, she has not only healed the physical but the spiritual.
I had lost faith that I could get pregnant after two miscarriages in 2007 and 2008 followed by a dry spell of trying but not getting pregnant for two years. The other day Shasta let me know that my pulse is slippery, which means in Chinese medicine that I’m pregnant.
It’s too early to confirm with a pregnancy test but I can feel my body changing. The early morning sickness is a clear sign to me too.
I encourage you to see Shasta whatever your ailment. She’s an amazing acupuncturist. Who knows? She may change your life too.
As an extreme endurance athlete and Crossfiter I put my body through hell. Non-stop races of 12-65 hours, stage races and multi-day competitions all drain and break down the body, but also tend to disrupt sleep for a few weeks as the body comes down from an extended adrenaline high hampering recovery. Shasta Tierra and acupuncture helped me bounce back after I struggled to recover from a 300k stage race in Europe I now go after every couple of all night training sessions or events as acupuncture helps restore balance and reset my body, so I sleep and recover better and faster!
